“34 year-old mystery solved!” by Stanley Pranin

One of Aikido Journal’s Facebook fans was kind enough to send me the following link of a Japanese-language movie whose English title is: The Power of Aikido. Being curious, I clicked on the link and lo and behold saw the figure of the Second Doshu Kisshomaru Ueshiba doing a stylized randori demonstration as the introduction to a commercial Japanese martial arts movie. When the title came on in Japanese, I was stunned: 激突合気道 (Gekitotsu Aikido, literally “Crash Aikido”). I had been looking for this film for 34 years!
